About this Community

This community addresses the BIG QUESTION, "How can we navigate the changes in the L&D industry and reframe our mindset so that we can build and strengthen our capabilities to do more meaningful work?"

Because when you give in to the siren call of “how it’s always been done,” treating training as an event rather than a curious, strategic exploration of connecting workplace learning to business results – that’s living in a comfort zone.

And that's what this community of rebels is against.

About Learning Rebels

When your training isn’t working and you don’t know why – getting results for your organization can feel impossible. But it doesn’t have to.

I’m Shannon Tipton, Owner of Learning Rebels®. As a workplace learning expert for 30+ years, I help Learning & Development professionals and HR leaders strategically fix what’s broken and deliver workplace training that delivers desired results and leverages resources wisely.

If you’re ready to fight for learning that sticks and results that add value, join here.

AWESOME! Welcome to the Rebellion. Now you will begin to receive great stuff from the mother ship. IMPORTANT!
